How Do I Search For Media?

With our vast and ever-growing library of over 31 million royalty-free video clips - plus music, sound effects, photos, and more, you can get inspired without compromise.

Getting Started

  • First, navigate to the Pond5 homepage.
  • Type your keywords into our search bar.
  • Choose your media type by selecting from the drop down menu to the right of your search.
  • Click the search icon or ENTER.

When you find media you like, simply click the add to cart or add to collection icon. You can also drag and drop the clips into the toolbar on the right, save them for later, or share with ease. You can even control who has access to your collections - just set them to private or public. You can read more in our What Are Collections? article.

Sorting Results

You can sort your results by choosing an option from the drop-down menu. This includes sorting by best match, popular, newest, price, and duration.


Note: Sorting will reset if media type is updated

How to Filter Search Results

You can refine your results by using the filters and sliders on the left hand side of your search results.

First, enter a search term into the search box, and click the search icon or ENTER. Once your search results appear, you will see the filters toolbar to the left of your results.

Your search results will update instantly with the filters you check.


Using Search Page Thumbnails

To get a closer look, simply hover your cursor over the Thumbnail to see a clip’s title and current price. You can directly add media to your cart or collection by clicking on the icons.


Clicking on the Thumbnail will take you to the item details page, where additional information will be available, and even more when you click the "view item details" arrow under the player window.
